>     NYC LABOR GROUP OPPOSES WAR
>
>     WHAT:  NYC labor press conference against war.
>
>     TIME:  Thursday, October 4, 12 Noon.
>
>     PLACE:  Union Square, north side of 14 Street.
>
>     WHO:  Labor Against War, an ad hoc coalition in response to the
> September 11 tragedy, supported by more than 100 union members (in their
> individual capacity) in New York City, including the following eight
> union presidents:  Larry Adams, National Postal Mail Handlers Union
> Local 300; Barbara Bowen, Professional Staff Congress-CUNY/AFT Local
> 2334; Arthur Cheliotes, Communication Workers of America Local 1180;
> Michael Letwin, Association of Legal Aid Attorneys/UAW Local 2325; Jill
> Levy, Council of Supervisors and Administrators, NYS Federation of
> School Administrators, American Federation of School Administrators

> 215, DC 1707; Jonathan Tasini, National Writers Union/UAW Local 1981.
>
>     PRINCIPLES:
>
>     •NO WAR.  It is wrong to punish any nation or people for the crimes of
> individuals—peace requires global social and economic justice.
>
>     •JUSTICE, NOT VENGEANCE.  An independent international tribunal to
> impartially investigate, apprehend and try those responsible for the
> September 11 attack.
>
>     •OPPOSITION TO RACISM—DEFENSE OF CIVIL LIBERTIES.  Stop terror, racial
> profiling and legal restrictions against people of color and immigrants,
> and defend democratic rights.
>
>     •AID FOR THE NEEDY, NOT THE GREEDY.  Government aid for the victims’
> families and displaced workers—not the wealthy.  Rebuild New York City
> with union labor, union pay, and with special concern for new threats to
> worker health and safety.
>
>     •NO LABOR “AUSTERITY.”  The cost of September 11 must not be borne by
> working and poor New Yorkers.  No surrender of workers’ living
> standards, programs or other rights.

>     New York City Labor Against War
>     September 27, 2001
>
>     September 11 has brought indescribable suffering to New York City’s
> working people.  We have lost friends, family members and coworkers of
> all colors, nationalities and religions—a thousand of them union
> members.  An estimated one hundred thousand New Yorkers will lose their
> jobs.
>
>     We condemn this crime against humanity and mourn those who perished.
> We are proud of the rescuers and the outpouring of labor support for
> victims’ families.  We want justice for the dead and safety for the
> living.
>
>     And we believe that George Bush’s war is not the answer.
>
>     No one should suffer what we experienced on September 11.  Yet war will
> inevitably harm countless innocent civilians, strengthen American
> alliances with brutal dictatorships and deepen global poverty—just as
> the United States and its allies have already inflicted widespread
> suffering on innocent people in such places as Iraq, Sudan, Israel and
> the Occupied Territories, the former Yugoslavia and Latin America.
>
>     War will also take a heavy toll on us.  For Americans in uniform—the
> overwhelming number of whom are workers and people of color—it will be
> another Vietnam.  It will generate further terror in this country
> against Arabs, Muslims, South Asians, people of color and immigrants,
> and erode our civil liberties.
>
>     It will redirect billions to the military and corporate executives,
> while draining such essential domestic programs as education, health
> care and the social security trust.  In New York City and elsewhere, it
> will be a pretext for imposing “austerity” on labor and poor people
> under the guise of “national unity.”
>
>     War will play into the hands of religious fanatics—from Osama bin Laden
> to Jerry Falwell—and provoke further terrorism in major urban centers
> like New York.
>
>     Therefore, the undersigned New York City metro-area trade unionists
> believe a just and effective response to September 11 demands:
>
>     **NO WAR.  It is wrong to punish any nation or people for the crimes of
> individuals—peace requires global social and economic justice.
>
>     **JUSTICE, NOT VENGEANCE.  An independent international tribunal to
> impartially investigate, apprehend and try those responsible for the
> September 11 attack.
>
>     **OPPOSITION TO RACISM—DEFENSE OF CIVIL LIBERTIES.  Stop terror, racial
> profiling and legal restrictions against people of color and immigrants,
> and defend democratic rights.
>
>     **AID FOR THE NEEDY, NOT THE GREEDY.  Government aid for the victims’
> families and displaced workers—not the wealthy.  Rebuild New York City
> with union labor, union pay, and with special concern for new threats to
> worker health and safety.
>
>     **NO LABOR “AUSTERITY.”  The cost of September 11 must not be borne by
